Does anyone except Saint Louisans remember the song "The Cheater" by Bob Kuban? "Look out for the Cheater, something something something..."
I ask because I noticed that a place by my house seems to have a marquee that says "Bob Kuban." Gary thinks it's a ticket outlet (because Highway 94, yeah, that's a great place for a ticket outlet) and I say it's a bar. But, we must find out, because: Bob Kuban!
I have an early memory of being on the river on the SS Admiral (back when it was mobile) and seeing Bob Kuban and the In-Men. I was perplexed that Bob Kuban wasn't the lead singer. Walter Scott, the lead singer for the band, "entertained" us in the eighties by being murdered by his wife. As Wikipedia says,
"Scott disappeared shortly after Christmas, 1983. In April, 1987 Scott's body, having been hog-tied and shot in the back, was found floating face-down in a cistern. Scott's second wife, JoAnn (Calceterra), pled guilty to hindering prosecution in his murder. She received a five year sentence. Her boyfriend (whom she married in 1986), James H. Williams Sr., was found guilty of two counts of capital murder in the deaths of his previous wife, Sharon Williams, and Walter Scott."
I don't recall this accurately, but I think the best part of the story was that James H. Williams Junior turned his father in by alerting the police that if they were to look in the cistern at Walter Scott's house they might find the body. I might be wrong, of course.
Of course, we have to go see Bob Kuban, because he's a Saint Louis fixture. I don't know who the lead singer is now, of course, but the drums will be good.
